I sometimes call it the fancy Mexican restaurant. This place is a little less TexMex than most of the other Mexican restaurants in the area. It's also a bit pricier, but you do get an interesting set of food choices that you don't get at many other Mexican restaurants.

4 of us had dinner at Zapata on a Saturday night. The meals were fantastic but the margaritas were even better. Made with fresh fruit and absolutely stunning. The chili relleno was a real hit as were the crepes with chicken and a chili cream .. We would order both again every time we go. The hangar steak was done... More

I come to Norcross regularly, and this is always my place to go to dinner on Friday nights(2x a month since November 2015), after flying into the ATL airport. Complimentary chips and salsa, and really great friendly service. I have been there for dinner and drinks, and they offer a wide-variety menu to suit many tastes. I am vegetarian, and... More

First, can’t comment on the food, because we came for the drinks. And that we did! House flavored infused tequila, drinks in authentic Mexican Coke bottles and superb margaritas were just some of the drinks the 6 of us sampled! Good beer on tap as well! Waiter / bartender / service was a little slow for a Sunday night, but... More

Such a unique menu and located right in downtown Norcross. The patio is great on a nice day. We love the enchiladas verdes, crepas cholula and crepas poblanos. The sopas appetizer is a great start to the meal and their salsa is very good. Service can sometimes be a bit slow, but the food is worth it!

Four of us tried Zapata for the first time and were pleasantly surprised. Service was top notch and the food was excellent. We ordered a salmon ceviche appetizer and a Molcajeta special entree dish that was very unique, delicious and enough for two to share. We will be returning.

We go here regularly for the Tuesday night Tacos. They are three for $6, and this includes charo beans as well. Tacate beers are $2 on this night as well. So 2 people on Tuesday night can get a plate of incredible tacos, charo beans, and a beer, all for $16 total. We've also had other items, and lemme tell... More

We’ve been taking some long lunches lately so I was looking for a place close to our office in Norcross. I drive by Zapata Tacos and Tequila Bar every morning on the way to work and on this morning, I decided “let’s give it a shot!”. I’d intentionally taken a late lunch so that we could avoid any lunch crowd... More
